Sara has the rare ability to operate at a high level across brand, people, process and business impact. Sara is a strategic design-thinker and leader, with an ability to lead and mentor an effective, cross-discipline, user-centered creative team. She is sensitive to inefficiency and lack of clarity or defined goals -- and takes the time to address and improve, regardless of the stakeholders or complexities involved. This earned Sara a high degree of trust across the organization and positioned herself as a leader who can help the business scale effectively.

Equally important, her creative output is not just beautiful — it’s unique and engaging, smart and savvy, informed by and in support of our project and business goals. Sara keeps her fingers on the pulse of global design trends and what’s connecting with consumers across multiple sectors. She’s a people-first leader who isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves to help meet a deadline. Said simply, Sara is one of the finest design thinkers I’ve worked with.

Cofounder, Modern Adventure

To contain Schu in a string of predictable sentences is already a drastic disservice to her character and guile. She’s a joy to brainstorm with, open to wild innovation and a fierce steward of brand standards.

Give her a scribbled brief on a bar napkin, and a few days later she’ll conjure a stunning brand identity from the thin air of nowhere. We’ve long suspected she’s a wizard.

But you know what’s really great about Schu? She’s kind and lovely human who leads by example and elevates the work and mood of those around her. And that compassion-despite the astonishing depth of her talent and craft-is her most impressive gift.


Arlo Voorhees
Creative Director at Modern Adventure

Working alongside someone as wickedly talented as Sara makes you better at your job purely by operating in her vicinity. I was fortunate enough to work closely with Sara for nearly five years, in which I served as a marketing strategist and Sara served as Senior Designer. Sara has an incredible ability to take strategy briefs and bring them to life with stunning creative, without ever losing sight of the marketing and sales objective at hand. We worked together on numerous national campaigns for the 100+ barre3 studio locations we supported, elevating our brand awareness, attracting new clients, and increasing sales of both class packages and retail. As if asking for a creative who's both fiercely talented and has a strong business acumen isn't enough, Sara is beyond a joy to work with. Highly collaborative, willing to roll up her sleeves and support anyone on her team, and always bringing fresh, innovative ideas to the table that elevated our organization as a whole. Any team would be beyond fortunate to have her!

Sara's raw talent is endless. I had the privilege to hire her early in her career, she is a quick learn and always rose to the challenge. Her 'design eye' is impeccable, and I loved to see the world through her eyes—she finds the beauty in almost anything.

If given the chance, I would hire Sara again. She is talented, easy to work with, a great communicator, and an all around stellar human. I called her a unicorn, and for good reason.
